8 the Performing Arts Center

Laugh until you cry with the “relatable” and unrelentingly funny Robin Fox, the comedienne headliner coming to Sussex County Community College’s Performing Arts Center in April.

Robin Fox, hailing from New Jersey, calls herself “the mother of all comedians” and pulls from her experiences as a full-time mom and family woman to create a knockout act that speaks to the audience, parents and non-parents alike.

Robin touches on topics such as her 27-year marriage, her children, her aging parents, and life in suburbia. She leaves her audience in hysterics with conversation on the daily life of raising kids in today’s day and age! Robin gives her thoughts on everything life has to offer and will leave you stitches. She has the distinct ability to make her audience roar with laughter.

Fox is a regular on the New York City comedy circuit and was named the Grand Champion of Gotham Comedy Club’s 2012 Ladies of Laughter Competition. She has also appeared on television, including on “Nickmom Night Out,” and is a regular on satellite radio. She has made waves in some of the hottest clubs, including Caroline’s on Broadway and Comix.

Tickets for the comedy show are $20 in advance, click here or $22 at the door.
